Eric Baumbach of Willowbrook, Illinois was inducted into the National Society of Collegiate Scholars in 2015. The society is an interdisciplinary organization for first and second year college students. Eric Baumbach achieved this honor based on his grade point average and class standing at the University of Illinois.

Every year, the National Society of Collegiate Scholars hosts Scholarcon, a three-day conference for college students that aims to help students define and develop their career path. The 2016 conference will take place June 9-12 in Orlando, Florida.

Scholarcon features over 45 career focused break-out sessions covering topics including resume writing, interview skills, and the basics of networking. A career fair is an integral part of the conference. Here, students can meet potential employers and begin their job search. Industry-specific panels on topics such as technology and higher education will also be offered.

Several notable speakers from a wide range of professions will be featured at the conference. Medal of Honor recipient Florent Groberg will speak, as well as anti-bullying activist Lizzie Velasquez; another highlighted speaker will be teen scientist and cancer researcher Jack Andraka.
